Sligo New Year Resolutions

By Bridie McMahon

Our special reporter took to the streets of Sligo and asked some residents, out walking on this fine day, what promises they’d made themselves for 2019.

“Basically stop saying “basically” all the time,” – Mary, Rathbraughan.

“Wear tighter underpants and stop eating laxatives,” – Jim, Strandhill.

“Eat less drink more – or maybe that but the other way around I think,” – Aoife, Kevinsfort.

“Spend less time looking at my smartphone and more time communicating directly with people – hopefully there’s an app for that,” – Mark, Cleveragh.

“Have a pacific policy on rubbish and recycling and things,” – John (Politician), Magheraboy.

“Give up the fags and boozing and lying – and if you believe that!” – Micky, Cairns Hill.

The final person wouldn’t talk to our reporter but instead handed over a note that read “Be More Assertive.”

As per last year we at SSN resolve to not make any resolutions and again we won’t be disappointing ourselves or anyone else.

Happy new year.
